how do I figure out what chip I have??

so I bought an 03 f250 and it has a hard wire chip I believe in my fuse box under the dash there is a single wire with a fuse plugged into an auxiliary slot.

Is it a 6.0 or a 7.3 liter? If its a 7.3 post this question there...if its a 6.0 they don't have "Chips" they use programmers or tuners most are removable. What you're describing could be banks or older stuff. Or it could be a wire for a display screen that might no longer be there.

Sounds more like an add-a-circuit to the existing fuse box. What else is it connected to? Prob was just a way to provide power to something like gauges, etc.

is this a 6.0 or 7.3 2003? they had both. The programmers/chips work completely different. It doesnt sound like any 6.0 programmer I have heard of though. you shouldnt hear a the fuel pump get louder and MPG usually only go up if you can stay off the gas pedal with the xtra power.. can u get pics of what you are talking about?

That is a add-a circuit. I don't know what it is connected to but I doubt that it is a programmer or "chip".
